Briefing notes


I hope that our “FinTech for Breakfast” series is now settling in to a pattern – summarising the main things that we in the City ought not to miss, and casting an eye into the future for whatever is coming up. As usual, there is too much to talk about in one session, but I am sure that FT Alphaville’s Izabella Kaminska, who leads our briefings, will pick out the stories big and small that are really worth knowing (probably kicking off with that Worldpay IPO).

Backing her up this month will be two prominent guest panellists, whom most of you will know already:

  • Rhydian Lewis, the founder and CEO of RateSetter, a leading UK marketplace lender which has delivered over £800m in lending; and
  • Susanne Chishti, the CEO and founder of FINTECH Circle, Europe’s first angel network focused on FinTech opportunities.

The session is intended to be interactive. Izabella will walk us through the FinTech headlines for various ‘beats’ (retail banking, payments, insurance, asset management and so forth). But what we really want is for you to help make sense of these stories by sharing your experience with the group (and adding anything we may have missed).
